Lead Exposure Prevention Education Videos from the CDC

May 05, 2023 | Anu Varma

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, developed two community lead exposure prevention education videos that provide an overview of what lead is, where it is found, and why it is important to protect young children from its exposure. Local health departments can use these videos to share on social media and other relevant platforms to reach general audiences!

According to CDC experts, “these videos take a much-needed step towards health equity and promote medical self-advocacy surrounding lead exposure in populations that can benefit the most.” 508 compliant versions of each video are available.

Videos are available at https://www.cdc.gov/nceh/lead/resources/lead-poisoning-prevention-training.htm, and linked below.

Title: Childhood Lead Exposure Prevention Education: Heads Up for High Schoolers

The first video targets high school students at the 10th grade level. The language and content are crafted especially appropriate for, and appealing to, the 15–16-year age group. The high school video may be shared in schools, clubs, civic and social events for teens.

Title: Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention: Information for the Community

This next video is designed for parents, teachers, and persons employed in many occupations that would benefit from this information, including real estate agents, plumbers, construction workers, and others. The video may be shared in a variety of community civic, service and business venues.
